Passage of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) contained many significant provisions that continue to impact hospitals and the communities they serve. One key provision requires hospitals to conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) and a corresponding implementation strategy − describing how they intend to address significant health needs − at least once every three years for all 501(c)(3) hospitals.

Our latest Policy Snapshot aims to decipher what is really required of hospitals reporting in 2016 and beyond. Part two of this two-part series focuses on key implementation strategy requirements and answers frequently asked questions about collaboration. Part one of the series, Community Health Planning Part 1: Community Health Needs Assessment Requirements, highlights key CHNA requirements.

Access part one of this series on needs assessment requirements.
